Favorite Media/Technology: WillHero (iPad game)
How do you and your family interact with media/technology?
Most of the time, I play games on my iPad by myself, especially WillHero! When I watch YouTube videos I usually watch those alone since they’re more for kids, like PBS kids, Ben & Holly’s little kingdom, and ASMR slime videos. I also watch a lot of Armenian movies and TV shows with my family, but we do that on the big family T.V. when everyone is done with work and school!
How do you and your peers interact with media/technology?
My friends and I take turns playing games on the iPad when we hang out and sometimes we watch videos together too, like on YouTube. We also like making TikTok videos – they’re super fun and there are lots of videos that are made for two people to be in together which is even more fun!
What do you use media for?
I mostly use media for playing games and watching videos when I’m bored and not at school or my afterschool activities. Sometimes I use it for my art to find stuff to draw and color.
What is your favorite/least favorite thing about media/technology?
My favorite thing about media is that it’s so fun and that there’s so much I can do with it. I don’t get bored with it because there are so many games and videos I could watch, and even ones that I can play with my friends.
I don’t like when there’s no Internet when I try to watch videos in the car and also when games don’t load.
